246. March 7, 2023 - I've been sporadically working on finishing out my basement (turning it into a bedroom for my daughters and a family den). This process heated up this week as I have more time, and because the next child is due in less than three weeks. And now I finally understand the weird things you find in homes when you're house shopping, like a mural of a wizard or a doorway that's shaped like the outline of a human body. There's something deep inside you during renovation that says "After all why not? Why shouldn't there be an action figure dispenser on the south wall?"
